So, that time of the year is finally here when we welcome prosperity into our homes with all zeal. Diwali is the festival of happiness and prosperity, millions of people across the country decorate their homes to welcome Goddess Laxmi. For this, the preparations start way ahead of time. People start cleaning their home and giving it a new look. An important part of this preparation is painting your home in new colors.
It is not necessary to paint your entire home; the idea behind Diwali decoration is to refurbish your home in a way that it looks grand and luxurious. Here is a guide to help you use colors in a creative way to give a festive ambience to your home.
Create an Accent Wall- Instead of painting the entire home in an all new color, you can create accent walls in the rooms and also outdoors. Mostly, the insides of the home are done in neutral colors like off white, beige, baby pink, eggshell and ivory. You can give your room a gleeful touch by painting one wall in a strikingly vibrant color. In contrast to the neutral hues, colors like deep red, orange, deep blue, green and coffee will give luxuriant look.
Play with Festive Color Palette- This is the time when you can think out of the box and come up with something that signifies festive enthusiasm but at the same time does not become an eyesore for the rest of the year. Leading emulsion brands also launch festive color palette to help you choose the right one for your soiree. Go for deep colors that bring bold vibrancy to your decor. Shades of orange, purple, green, deep red, magenta and dark blue make beautiful festive colors. If you are going for a monochromatic theme, go for colors like champagne, iris, sapphire, tango pink and laurel green.
Decals and Stencils- If a simply painted wall is not your thing, bring out your creativity and use stencils to create something extraordinary on your walls. Festive stencils include those of diyas, plants, goddess and a design similar to that of a rangoli. Wall decals are also a popular embellishment to your plain walls. These are readily available in the market and are also easy to apply on your walls.
Textured Walls and Wallpapers- Textured walls are also a great way to show your creativity this festive season. However, you may need professional assistance to create something extraordinary. Crinkle effect, pleating effect and brushed overlap are some popular wall textures. If your home is a new one and you do not feel like wasting your money on painting it again, wallpapers are always there to give a temporary festive look to your home.
Besides colors, textures and designs, what else gives your walls a festive look? Photo frame, a painting on your accent wall or a mirror decor would add unimaginable opulence to your home decor.
